What happens when you look at the morning sky and wish you could paint a blueness just like that.
Dark deep endless
the sky last night filled
with stars and planets and myth
This morning, a blue bowl –
a perfectly executed wash
saturated zenith fading
subtly down to the horizon
where the hunter hides
in the shade, cooling his dogs
and himself until night returns.

I wrote these last night onto my phone. Little did I know that the early bird prompt was of prose and haiku.
I fold the words, clouds
Sailing on seas blue, endless,
this telling of sky:
the love it holds out to clouds
protective of stars.
Scooping up the wind
Directing it now to hills,
Now to the river
So I’m off to a month of poems, today combining haiku and sonnet-form.
I fold the words, clouds creased on seas blue
endlessly sailing, purposeful of love
This telling of the sky, holding out stars
protective, small repeated gesturing
which sweeps the night, trees clattering with wind
in between, the stars refrain the chatter
popping with glint until clouds win again
and the night shivers with rain, falling cold.
Going out to see what is in the world
Stepping off the porch, rain or snow or clear
The world travels in its late night journey
Far off the train sings or an owl calling
Far off the house seems, a few steps further
past the tree to learn what of the night.

ho hum, right?
I had dinner with Mom tonight and straightened out her Pokemon issues and we had a good chat and then I headed home. Stopped to take some cloud pictures. The sunset was pretty but small-ish. I took some photos and then turned to look to something else. Then there was a lot of pink light cast on the nearby buildings and such and the sunset had almost started up again. So here you go, tonight’s unedited photos and in chronological order. My advice, click through and stick it out to the end.

I really needed groceries and sometimes you just have to give in and get groceries. Fine. On the way home though, the northern and eastern skies were quite interesting as I came through Nassau. I pulled off at the top of Lord Hill and enjoyed the scene overhead. (Flickr album – click on the bottom photo here.)
Here’s the Flickr album:

I was driving towards these towering plops of whipped cream-ish clouds with darkness below on the way home. And by whipped cream I mean when you whip cream and then keep whipping until it’s almost just about to begin thinking about becoming butter…
They were to the east and north and it became obvious that I should scope out some clear views in that direction. Oh well, I did find some new pokestops etc.
